Need 2 disable "Checking the Status of the Embedded Security Chip"

2009-07-16, 17:26 PM

This takes ages. Tried going into the BIOS and setting Client Security to both Disabled and Inactive. I also disabled cssauth in my startup and that didn't work either.

The most efficient way of stopping this message is to remove "Client Security Solution" from Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel. Going in the BIOS and trying to remove it in safe mode will NOT fix this issue. I know it's painful waiting for it to check that status each time, but this is controlled directly by the CSS software itself.

 

Hope this helps.
